Able to handle larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating in comparison to worm, helical, etc.
High reduction ratios and torque density in a compact dimensional footprint
Exceptional “built-in” overhung load carrying capability
High efficiency (>95%) per reduction stage
Minimal reflected inertia to electric motor for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged as all get-out
The overall EP design proves to be extremely durable, and it needs minimal maintenance following installation. The EP is the most Cycloidal gearbox reliable reducer in the industrial marketplace, in fact it is a perfect fit for applications in weighty industry such as for example oil & gas, major and secondary metal processing, commercial food production, metal trimming and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion devices, among others.
Cycloidal advantages over additional styles of gearing;
The EP 3000 and our related products that make use of cycloidal gearing technology deliver the most robust solution in the most compact footprint. The main power train is comprised of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a set of internal pins, keeping the reduction high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel incorporates a curved tooth profile instead of the more traditional involute tooth profile, which removes shear forces at any stage of contact. This design introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that would exist with an involute gear mesh. That provides a number of functionality benefits such as high shock load capability (>500% of ranking), minimal friction and put on, lower mechanical service factors, among numerous others. The cycloidal style also has a big output shaft bearing period, which gives exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any additional expensive components.
Torque magnification. Gearboxes offer mechanical advantage by not merely decreasing rate but also increasing result torque.
